Reflexology in Pregnancy, Childbirth and Postpartum with Kay Shore, CRP
Reflexology is a safe gentle treatment that can improve the well-being of the mother as increasing demands are made on her body during pregnancy.
It can help alleviate:
- Morning sickness
- Lower Back Pain
Studies done in the UK document shorter labours, less use of analgesics, and fewer interventions in women receiving weekly reflexology treatments in the last half of their pregnancy.
Reflexology treatments during labour can help stimulate the uterus and relax the mother.
During the initial weeks of post partum and lactation, reflexology can help:
- Restore the body's hormonal balance
- Facilitate the let down of milk
- Calm fluctuating emotions that can lead to post partum depression
